Here's what we do with our hands these days: We poke, we stroke, we wipe, we swipe.
But we don't actually write, do we? Not, you know, by hand and pen.
Who does that? Why bother? Every message you could ever think of sending is typeable, printable and, one imagines, emojible.

He's created the iTrace app for iPad and iPhone, perhaps the first step in getting a great job in the future. Yes, just like the one Joaquin Phoenix has in "Her." (Do see it. He writes letters by hand. Sort of.)… Read more

A microscopic windmill could one day provide a portable method of charging devices. The tiny machines, just 1.8 millimeters at their widest point (10 can fit on a single grain of rice), can harvest energy from the movement of air.
They are the work of University of Texas, Arlington, research associate Smitha Rao and electrical engineering professor J.-C. Chiao. The pair envisions smartphone cases embedded with hundreds of windmills that could charge the phones therein when waved through the air or held by an open window on a windy day. … Read more
